Trip To San Clemente on New Years Day

Posted on Jan 2, 2017 in Family

We headed up the coast for a nice drive to San Clemente California.  San Clemente is the southernmost point of Orange County and the first hop out of San Diego.

It is a cool surfer beach town with lots of cool shops, great food and coffee shops.  It was a nice way to begin the New Year.

A Family Portrait Devolves

Posted on Dec 26, 2016 in Family

Michael gathered up the kids Oliver, Frankie and James and said, “Line up here boys.  Let’s have Uncle Frank take a family portrait with his beautiful, beautiful camera.”   We always refer to my camera these days as “my beautiful, beautiful camera.”

The boys were not too into it.  But Oliver was first to line up. Then Frankie and James followed him.  But they could not quite keep it together. Michael jumped into to help organize them but it didn’t work.

Things went from bad to worse in a hurry and this was the family portrait that we ended up with that fine Christmas Day.   I call it, “A Family Family Portrait that Devolved into Chaos”

Merry Christmas to All!  Hope you had a wonderful day with your families.
